The Autobiography of Jimmy Lee.
Jimmy Lee has led some sort of life!
He had a start in life few would have survived; he was taken into care at three years old and by the time he was eleven he had moved home ten times and attended nine different schools.
His early adolescence was hard by any standards. At fourteen, he ran away to join the Royal Navy and was sent, along with 2000 other boys, to the notorious HMS Ganges at Shotley, in Suffolk, a training establishment where a harsh regime held sway.
He had the misfortune to be placed under the care of two particularly brutal instructors, prone to drunkenness, whose continual bullying and abuse proved too much for his emerging free spirit.
Jim fought back and deserted on numerous occasions. Among his many punishments, he suffered ‘cuts’, a particularly brutal form of naval punishment. The next six years passed with regular naval detentions in the Royal Naval Detention Quarters, Portsmouth, involving exhausting routines and solitary confinements, which ended with a twelve month sentence in the infamous HM Military Prison Corradina, Malta, after which he was dismissed from the Service and returned to civilian life.
Then his troubles really began!
Winner of 20 book awards, SHOT DOWN is set within the framework of World War II in Europe and recounts the dramatic experiences of each member of a ten man B-17 bomber crew after their plane, piloted by the author’s father, was knocked out of the sky by German fighters over the French/Belgium border on February 8,1944.
Some men died. Some were captured and became prisoners of war. Some men evaded capture and were missing in action for months before making it back to England. Their individual stories and those of the courageous Belgian people who risked their lives to help them are all different and are all remarkable.
Even before the dramatic battle in the air and the subsequent harrowing events on the ground, the story is informative, insightful, and captivating. Prior to the fateful event, the book covers the crew’s training, their journey to England, what life was like on base as well as in London and the English countryside, and the perils of flying combat missions over occupied Europe and Germany.
Through personal letters, oral and written accounts, declassified military documents, and interviews – all from people who took part in the events that happened over 70 years ago (even the German Luftwaffe pilot who shot down the Susan Ruth) – the stories come alive. Adding to the feeling of “being there”, are more than 200 time period photographs interspersed throughout the book.
To add background and context, many historical facts and anecdotes about and surrounding World War II are entwined throughout the book so that the reader has a feel for and understanding of what was occurring on a broader scale. SHOT DOWN is an account about brave individuals, featuring pilot Howard Snyder, set within the compelling events of the greatest conflict in world history.
An American family in crisis and how they deal with it. An aging WWII veteran with dementia, a pregnant daughter bein stalked by her meth using boyfriend, and a preteen becoming a teenager are what we see. Behind the scenes, a greater crisis is gathering as an old enemy of one of the family gets ready to take revenge from his post as manager of a security firm contracted to the NSA. By the end of the story you will be wondering who has your information and what are they going to do with it. Available in both Kindle and paperback.

Welcome to Whistle Stop…where anything can and most likely will happen.
The notorious cowboy meets his match…
Cord Lawson instantly distrusted the young woman in a smart suit who’d just arrived in Whistle Stop.

But she’s sniffing around his land—land that has been in his family for generations.
Alexis Greer had one mission—close the deal on the Lawson ranch; without it, her father’s land development company would go bankrupt. But the word around town is to keep clear of Cord and to stay away from his precious land. However, determination was Lexi’s middle name. She just had to keep on trying to breach Cord’s barriers, to appeal somehow to his head and heart—even if it put her in danger of losing both of hers…to him.
When former Roman Legion Legate Gaius Marcus Linneus is reduced in rank to Centurion and banished by Emperor Marcus Aurelius to Tripolitania in Northern Africa, he finds his new command, a Shadow Legion, a reduced century of dishonored legionnaires, as much punishment as his dishonor. Castra-Augustus, a small fort in the southern Sahara, is under attack by an unseen enemy who takes soldiers at night, leaving only shredded clothing. He is determined to vanquish this enemy to regain his lost honor.
Gaius discovers an ancient city carved from solid rock half-buried by shifting sands. When Rashid, who claims to be a Berber salt merchant, arrives just after two more legionnaires disappear, Gaius questions him and learns the name of the ancient city – Hamad Rus, home of the Kashites who once lived East of Eden. Their long-time enemies, the Inyosh, the undead Children of Lilith, had driven the Kashites west into Northern Africa millennia earlier. Casting a spell to destroy the Inyosh, the Kashites had instead changed them into formless wraiths that killed to obtain blood for their god, Nergal. Now, the Inyosh have awakened, and Rome is at risk.

A surreal science fiction novella with unique concepts. A ship crashlands on a faraway planet, but the natives are a million years ahead of Earth, so they ignore the humans. How does the four-man (two of each) crew attract attention, survive the strange environment and discover the real purpose of their secret mission payload? Possibly the first novella with a vegan main character, written by a long-time vegan and set on a vegan planet. Plenty of room for arguments among the mixed-diet crew though!
An American Story: My Family and Yours, is not only an American story, but a worldwide story—a story that shares the emotions, fears, experiences and challenges every family in the human race can relate to. It underlines the idea, that a human problem is a world problem because the world suffers from it in some way—sometimes visible and sometimes invisible.
Humanity shares the same emotions, hardships and successes because it lives in a human vacuum—a vacuum that loves, hates, forgives, suffers and dies. Families work together and families work against each other, but when faith and love conquer thought, they forgive each other and move on.
My family, is only a representation of your family, and collectively, we are a microcosm of the world family. This is why you can and will relate to this book. The author’s pain becomes your pain, and her joy makes your heart overflow. You will see faith, courage and inner peace lived because it identifies with your faith and courage. As you read, her family will be replaced by your own personal experiences with your family.

Chasing the Orchid will leave you guessing what is real and what is an illusion. Witness a man reach his breaking point and find out if love will see him through his nightmare.
Can he find a way to deal with his past before it is too late, or will the events escalate and culminate in a shocking conclusion?
For the record, this is not a “John Parker hates white people” book. Anybody who knows me at all knows that to be the farthest thing from the truth. This book is meant to spark (if you so desire) an open, honest and painfully true conversation about the most polarizing subject in American society; Race and Racism. My hope is that after reading it (both white people and black people alike) will seek to find common ground and understand that we do have two different cultures and that we can “disagree without being disagreeable.”
If we are to succeed as a country in the future, it is time that everybody “got comfortable being uncomfortable”

On the morning of October 08 2015, Alpha Intercontinental Flight AHA 113 was approaching Cape Town International Airport at 09:15 in the morning. It had originally departed New York the previous night on schedule. From New York it traveled to Dubai and after its regular stop for refueling and fresh catering etc, it departed Dubai and fourteen hours later, approaching Cape Town and due to touchdown in the next ten minutes, simply vanished from both visual sight and radar. It was not the only disappearance of aircraft in the surrounding space.
But, it is the one I know about.
Flight AHA 113 was never seen or heard from again, despite extensive rescue efforts mounted. No wreckage was ever found, no traces of luggage were ever seen. It was as if Flight AHA 113 had simply never existed.
But … Flight AHA 113 had existed. It did in fact crash into the sea, close enough to land that while 237 passengers perished either as a result of the crash itself or trying to make it to shore, 28 survivors eventually made it to safety.

The God Process is a Memoir where the reader gets to discover again why faith matters. In the mystery of our soul we find our hope, our miracles and the why we pray.
The God Process spans four generations and Ethereal messages… Angels, premonitions, near death, the answers to prayer and in this Whisper that speaks. When we stop, look back, look in and look up, the Whisper comes. The desires of our heart become grounded in our prayers and it is here that we see this movement of God in all our lives. In the depths of our soul comes the why we are here and what it is that God is trying to do.
Although I am Christian and I see my life lessons from my faith, The God Process is inspiring to all readers.

This is my second book called “All those Tears we can’t see” which addresses a lot of topics – immigration, opportunity, spirituality, myth, wisdom, class, customs, poverty, corruption and physical assault in India. It is a story of India and USA. The book displays these two countries under microscope so that we can see clearly the differences between beliefs and way of life in each country and began to understand the challenges immigrants face. It was difficult and traumatic for Samantha (The immigrant in my book) to leave everything behind and start a new life where the language, culture, traditions, morals, beliefs and everyday way of life are totally foreign. To assimilate into a new country while still retaining one’s culture and beliefs, as Samantha puts it that it is her destiny to come to this wonderful country to serve her even though it is not her country.
“All Those Tears We Can’t See” is also a story of a first generation Indian-American girl and how she figures out her life and finds out that she has love for both sides of her cultures. We follow Monica, who believes that she is all American at heart, even though both her parents are Indian. Although she loves both her parents and respects their beliefs and their customs wholeheartedly, there is a cultural gap that seems to never fill. Samantha and Monica both like the Spirituality, wisdom, music, dance, cousin and ancient culture in India but do not like many customs like dowry system, corruption in all level, poverty and marriage system. When English left India many families still followed the English culture in their household. Now the modern India brought many technologies to enhance middle classes wealthy life. The fragile and loving relationship between daughter and mother broken over interracial relationship with an American boy named Brandon because her mother feared that her Bengali culture will be lost. To understand her mother better Monica now a journalist undertook a remarkable journey to India from her job assignment in finding out about her mother’s root that resists all American value and culture. In India, Monica, thought she had found her own identity as an American, as she describes it “she is all American in heart” but she was partially wrong. She fell in love and felt attachment, and was fascinated by Indian people and their spirituality. Later when she faced physical assault (based on 2012 gang physical assaults in Delhi, India) everything went upside down for the whole family and Samantha chooses the ultimate justice for her daughter. What will happen now? Can Monica go back to America and share her new found love with her mother and Brandon? Will she even get the chance?
With all those tragedies there was a silver lining in this book when Samantha realizes that love between two people had no boundaries. She made a big mistake by pushing her daughter to think like her eastern belief but Monica has grown up with western belief and morals. Would Samantha embraces and accepts Brandon who was Christian as her own family by breaking her predefined set of value about race and religion?

Three Novellas in One Book. Check out the review at the Online Book Club.
His long-ago lover brings a cryptic letter to Paris, pulling Eddie Grant reluctantly into a web of intrigue and death — but giving him one slim chance to find the terrorists who murdered his family seven years before.
The letter sparks a dangerous quest across Paris, the Loire Valley, and the gleaming beaches of the Florida Gulf Coast for the most valuable Nazi loot that remains missing, a famous Raphael self-portrait from the early 16th century. The painting and the crates of bullion that accompanied it were intended to finance the Fourth Reich, or so the rumors said.
Jen Wetzmuller, daughter of his late father’s World War II colleague in American Army intelligence, found the letter after her father was run down by a car in the streets of Sarasota. For Eddie, it brings the long-cold case of his family’s murder back to life.
Its clues propel him from his Paris home to Florida, where he barely escapes with his life. Then it’s back home, to burrow into the darkest reaches of the German occupation.
Along the way, he and Jen restart the brief, fiercely passionate affair that he abandoned, to his regret, 20 years before.
Most of all, Treasure of Saint-Lazare is a novel of Paris.
The painting, Portrait of a Young Man, remains missing, although the Polish government said recently that it still exists and is in a safe place.
“Bravo!” (Ronald Rosbottom, author of When Paris Went Dark)
“An exceptionally well written book with a fast-paced story line and many plot surprises.” (Connield, Amazon reviewer)
A “fast-paced thriller spanning the globe from Paris to the states.” (Carole P. Roman, Amazon reviewer)
“I read it once and then waited a week and read it again.” (Amazon reviewer)

BASED ON THE TRUE STORY OF THE VIETNAM VET WAR HERO, KNOWN AS THE “AMERICAN GANGSTER” WHO RAN A COVERT CIA OPERATION AND EMERGED AS VIETNAM’S ‘OSKAR SCHINDLER’
A great historical fictional work on ‘Vietnam’s mobbed-up late 1960s – 1970s Saigon, Pearl of the Orient, Vietnam, “American Gangster – Operation Beaucoup Dinky Dau”
In the best-selling tradition of the world’s master historical fiction storytellers, Mario Puzo’s, “The Godfather”; Tim O’Brien’s “The Things They Carried”; Winston Groom’s Forrest Gump; Victor Hugo’s, “Les Misérables”; Leo Tolstoy’s “War and Peace”; Norman Mailer’s, The Naked and The Dead; Gore Vidal’s Lincoln: A Novel; and Graham Greene’s “The Quiet American”
Steve Murphy, Network TV and Documentary Film Producer, Writer, and Combat Vietnam Veteran, tells the extraordinary story of a never before told, top secret covert CIA operation, known only as “OPERATION BEAUCOUP DINKY DAU”, that served as the unofficial covert Logistics operation to the CIA’s Phoenix Montagnard fighters, fighting the North Vietnamese forces during 1968-1973.
“This I-can’t-believe-it’s-not-fiction” tale has it all: a Marlboro- Man handsome Vietnam War Hero, a parade of impossibly gorgeous women, sex, spies, copious quantities of booze, drugs, and enough violence to take Arnold Schwarzenegger and his Terminator scriptwriters through several more sequels. It’s both a rip-roaring expose and harrowing.
It’s the story of the underbelly of the Saigon metropolis like few others. Corrupt Generals, shady Politicians, gangsters, prostitutes, bootleggers, opium addicts, jazz musicians, deserters, black marketeers, and your run of the mill criminals, murderers, thieves, and con artists….
Casting light on the Federal Government’s links with organized crime and how a highly decorated American MAT Team Advisor Vietnam Veteran, Johnnie Walker, known in Saigon, as “The America Gangster”, became Saigon’s most successful Criminal Mastermind, as well as the most influential “unofficial” Defense Attaché Office (DAO) “Contractor” to the CIA’s Phoenix Program, and the owner of the famous supper club and casino, “Beaucoup Dinky Dau”, and who had unparalleled connections leading all the way up to Vietnam’s Presidential palace and the CIA.
It’s a story most Americans have never heard of and shines a new and disturbing light on the role of the United States in the creation of communist Vietnam, and their treatment of the indigenous tribes that fought for the CIA’s Phoenix Program.
Johnnie Walker dominated Saigon’s War profiteering, Black Market, Money Laundering, and Drug Trafficking for all the major Vietnamese Crime Lords Generals in Saigon, as well as for South Vietnam’s President Nguyễn Văn Thiệu, and Air Marshall /South Vietnam’s VP, Nguyễn Cao Kỳ.
His astounding metamorphosis from criminal mastermind to Vietnam’s ‘Oskar Schindler’ began in 1968 when he discovers that Washington intends to abandon his friends and former MAT Team CIA Phoenix program Montagnards, “The Yards”, fighters that he’d fought side by side with as a MAT Team Advisor in Pleiku. He loved “The Yards” and the War Orphans the Yards took care of, and he was going to make sure he did the “Right Thing” for them.
It was an amazing turnabout for the once money-hungry Walker, because even though he did not begin his journey as a hero, by the time the war was winding down, he became one. He used his cunning to bend the system to help him and his over 600 Yards and 100 Orphans escape Vietnam. He was strong in the face of constant danger and double-cross, and he placed the well-being of The Yards and Orphans above his own well-being.
Based on real historical events, the suspense and intrigue of the story carries larger-than-life qualities and heightened reality. It’s about 90% historical basis and 10% creative license, but it adds up to 100% spellbinding story. It has more political intrigues, more suspense, more intense psychological analysis, and more technological know-how than anything Tom Clancy or Robert Ludlum could fantasize about.
And it has something else besides: It’s based on a true story, depicts the courage and shrewdness of an unlikely savior, a man who is a flawed mixture of hedonism and decency and who, in the presence of unutterable evil, transcends the limits of his own humanity, and the pragmatic triumph of good over evil, a triumph in eminently measurable, statistical, unsubtle terms.
Set in his adopted hometown, Saigon, Vietnam, where he spent over six years, American Gangster – Operation Beaucoup Dinky Dau, is the book that Steve Murphy has been building up to for his whole career. From its opening fusillade to its astonishing conclusion, it’s that rarest of literary creations: a book that combines spectacular elegance of craft with a kinetic wallop as fierce as the Monsoons and Tsunamis bringing torrential rains to the Pearl of the Orient.
The Autobiography of Jimmy Lee.
Jimmy Lee has led some sort of life!
He had a start in life few would have survived; he was taken into care at three years old and by the time he was eleven he had moved home ten times and attended nine different schools.
His early adolescence was hard by any standards. At fourteen, he ran away to join the Royal Navy and was sent, along with 2000 other boys, to the notorious HMS Ganges at Shotley, in Suffolk, a training establishment where a harsh regime held sway.
He had the misfortune to be placed under the care of two particularly brutal instructors, prone to drunkenness, whose continual bullying and abuse proved too much for his emerging free spirit.
Jim fought back and deserted on numerous occasions. Among his many punishments, he suffered ‘cuts’, a particularly brutal form of naval punishment. The next six years passed with regular naval detentions in the Royal Naval Detention Quarters, Portsmouth, involving exhausting routines and solitary confinements, which ended with a twelve month sentence in the infamous HM Military Prison Corradina, Malta, after which he was dismissed from the Service and returned to civilian life.
Then his troubles really began!

This book contains broad and definitive concepts for black men to master in order to stay out of the criminal justice system. I focus on black men, because this is what I understand most, being black and a man. I know what this country has done to and for black men. My focus is on the criminal justice system, because of my professional experiences, and a desire to address the crisis that is happening to black boys and men, because of racism and historical oppression. In order to make connections, I have incorporated large aspects of my personal life story. These accounts, confessions, and revelations are woven in along with my perceptions on historical, political, societal and psychological factors that are negatively impacting black men. Particularly, I have written about white supremacy and patriarchy, the foundations on which the United States was founded, and of which feeds the oppression against black men that lingers today.
This book is particularly timely due to the social and political backlash demonstrated by the Trump administration, following eight years of President Obama. I discuss this current climate in honest and insightful ways. In my book, I am sharing with black men how to study, understand, and navigate through white oppression. I believe in controlling what we can, which starts with self. This book is realistic about the state of affairs in the United States, but my message is certainly not overwhelmingly negative. There is much to love about America. I devote an entire chapter on reasons why black men should not treat this great country as an enemy of our people. Yet, I am also brutally honest. There are systemic traps for black men. As a black man and part of the first post-Jim Crow generation, I have strong opinions about the struggles of black men in America. Pride and a belief in civil rights were instilled in me by my late maternal grandfather, Andrew Jordan, a local leader at the height of the civil rights movement in Greenwood, Mississippi. My devoted mother, Jordana Shakoor, has also had a strong influence on my racial viewpoints. Her book, Civil Rights Childhood, is still used in courses at universities all over the country. Besides practicing law and occasionally teaching college courses, I have been active in my community as a volunteer mentor and through pro bono work with the ACLU. I also sometimes work with political activists in Tampa, Florida, which has given me insight and inspiration to help in the struggle. On a lighter note, I am a proud graduate of the Ohio State University and a fanatical Buckeye fan. My obsessive interests in pop culture, particularly sports, movies and music, are a natural and strong fiber throughout the book to serve as inspiration and examples to support my advice to black men. There is a great deal of humor in my book as well, but it is mixed in with many sobering moments. I grew up in a home where my mother and sister were abused by my horrible stepfather, before my mother found the courage to end the marriage. My mother worked many hours and also went back to college to earn her degree. We struggled financially in a moderately affluent white suburb, with an excellent school system. I never quite fit into the community. As a young black boy growing up in this environment, and troubled home life, it caused me problems with self-esteem, depression and anger. For the most part, I was a good student, but I abused alcohol, and occasionally used drugs. I never went to prison, but this is because of a strong family and good luck. Some of the friends I hung around with abused and sold drugs, along with other criminal activity. One of my closest friends went to prison, and another passed away. I share stories in my book, about these dear friends of mine. Ultimately, I hope this book will help keep black men out of the criminal justice system and save lives.

The Unlikely Olympian
Step into Your Fears To Achieve Your Dream
Danielle Kettlewell wasn’t an Olympian, or so she thought. There was a huge barrier that stood in the way of her competing for Australia in the world’s largest sporting event, and it wasn’t her fitness, ability or money: it was Danielle Kettlewell.
In her book, ‘The Unlikely Olympian’ Danielle reveals how the little voice inside her head whispering ‘what if…’ was her savior, the two-letter catalyst that pushed her to go through the process of trialing for the Games. While for many the dedication and commitment to training would take its toll, Danielle also had to juggle her inner emotions. Self-doubt, a lack of confidence and fear were her enemies but, as she grew physically stronger through training and exercise, she also developed mental processes that challenged her thought patterns and self-doubts. Dreams became a possibility…
Prepare as Danielle takes you on her journey through her emotions and thought patterns that may (or may not) lead her to Rio 2016. Prepare not to be a bystander; come on the journey for your own good. Along the way, you will learn how to acknowledge, how to address and how to change your mindset for the better. While competing at the Olympic Games might not be your challenge, Danielle’s experience and learning tools apply to all.
The Unlikely Olympian will show you…
- How the key to change is to accept that something needs to happen. Danielle opens about her fears and feelings in a way that allows the reader to do the same. If something is holding you back from achieving your dreams, now is the time to do something about it.
- How to acknowledge and re-address your Limiting Self Beliefs (LSB). By recognising the thought patterns that hold us back in life, you will notice them, pick them apart and, ultimately, move forwards.
- How to reach out for help. While many self-help books focus on doing all the hard work alone, Danielle encourages you to seek advice and inspiration from outside sources. In combination with your inner-beliefs and guidance, the two form a powerhouse that helps you to achieve your goals and vanquish self-doubts.
- How to ignite your passions so that you are on a journey you enjoy. If there’s something you love to do – now’s the time.
- How to recognise your gifts and your abilities – they are there, realise them.
- How to use setbacks and challenges as opportunities for growth and resilience.
- How to get your mojo back – essential reading if you’ve been stagnating.
- How to face fear and work through it. A challenge isn’t a genuine challenge if you don’t meet some adversity along the way!
- How to become self-aware – and how to learn from your new found awareness.
- How to be present and grateful – training your mindset to one of thankfulness.
Only you truly know if you are held back by limited self-doubts, fear and a lack of confidence. If you see the words and like the way they sound, only you can imagine what it might feel like to experience them, to internalise them and let them play out in your life.
In the words of Danielle Kettlewell, “We are who we believe that we are – so make sure the belief is in alignment with your soul’s desire to be who you KNOW you CAN be.”
What would you do if you were being stalked and no one took you seriously? A recently handicapped young married woman, who by her own resourcefulness and the wonders of the Internet, overcomes her struggle against the unwanted sexual advances of a dangerous retiree with a buried criminal past.

She was traded to him for a weapon.
Traded, as if she was no better than a piece of property. Gova Dov doesn’t know what to expect, but it can’t be as bad as the abuse she’d received at the hands of her last master. Gova has never known kindness like Muam. She soon learns she can trust him, but can he trust someone like her? He’s told her she’s free to leave, but does she want to go? Does he even want her to stay?
Muam Kai works hard to earn his living, and payment in flesh won’t exactly buy his next meal, but he can’t turn the abused girl away. However, he’s no slave owner.
When Gova’s past comes back for her, Muam vows that no matter what happens to them, they will always have each other. Always find each other. In this life or the next.
It’s a dying promise that would prove to be a curse on them both.

Lucas Jameson has given up on women. In his opinion, they’re only good for one thing, and one thing only. That’s one of the reasons he became a park ranger. The other reason was to get away from the big city and his ex-girlfriend. He’s not the type to take orders from anyone, especially a woman. Living in a cabin in the woods, alone, was more his style. That is until he happens upon a woman, lost and afraid, and with no idea who, or where she is. Lucas has no idea how to handle this fragile wisp of a woman and has no intention of trying to. But, there’s something about her that reminds him of someone he lost years ago.

He’ll hitchhike and sleep in the woods while he looks for work and sees the sights of Europe from the cheap seats. His companions on the road will be one paperback traded for another and the ghost of a lost brother, until luck and instinct begin the dictate the itinerary and introduce colorful characters, instant friends and transient romance.
Five Ferries continues the American literary tradition of the young man leaving home to seek adventure. Melville used traditional storytelling for this tale and then Twain wrote the story the way people really spoke. Hemingway stripped away the pretense of language all together to reflect his protagonist’s post-World War I cynicism, and after World War II Kerouac phrased his hero’s search for experience and self-awareness in the beat generation language of jazz. Five Ferries updates this story by following a hero scarred by the Vietnam War and living in world of rock and roll.

As I’ve journeyed through life, one lesson I’ve learned is that every person in my life who has inspired me has gone through some sort of life altering event. Think about that for a minute and I challenge you to find someone who has not. Ghandi, Martin Luther King, Jr., Abraham Lincoln, Oprah, Joseph in the Bible, the list goes on. The reality is that as harsh as it may seem at the time, without that hardship to mold and transform you, you would not have grown as greatly as you did in the end. Their stories have a common thread. One of humbleness, perserverence, a will to succeed, and hope. Karen’s story is no exception. I add her to the list of greats who have inspired me. You need to read her story. You won’t regret it!

I am rarely one to find myself tearing while reading a book however this read was one of those times. Karen’s story gripped me. It is a heart wrenching, yet inspiring, tale of a woman who surpassed all odds. Her story will inspire and motivate you. This is definitely won of those tales you don’t want to miss! I am adding it to my Christmas gift list for friends this year. I absolutely loved it!
By Jennifer Dunn
Karen’s story will move and inspire you. If you are looking to read about an incredible journey of tenacity and the will of a spirit to live and succeed, you need to read her story. It will reinvigorate you on life. Why can a whale lift it’s own body out of the water yet a single human cannot? Well I’ve heard it said because no one told it, it can’t. Despite being told by many that she couldn’t, Karen DID — I say its because she never gave up or accepted a set of cards she couldn’t live with. Her journey will touch you — it is one that should not be missed. Highly recommend!

I could not put it down! You truly are an inspiration for anyone suffering from any ailment. Thank you for informing us and writing such a real account of the trials, setbacks, and then uphill battles that you encountered during a desperate time to just survive in your life.

Our minds are rebellious. The mind exists as though it has a mind of its own. Once you try to control the mind, it repels our efforts in ways that we cannot understand. Consequently, through meditation, this can be solved. Looking at the bigger picture, meditation not only helps in learning how to control the mind. It also assists in helping people take control of their lives. Frankly, we all seek happiness in this life. However, we are often confused with the direction that we ought to take. This happens because there is a lot that we have to deal with. Daily life’s challenges stress us too much to the point that we find it easy to throw in the towel.
One of the main aspects of meditation is that it trains us to connect with our inner selves. This is what contributes to our improved self-awareness. The fact that we are more attuned to our inner selves guarantees us that we can control our lives. We can heal ourselves from the pain that we might be going through.
There is no rocket science involved in the notion of living mindfully. This is something that can be incorporated into our everyday lives. Whether you are walking, eating, or listening to your partner, mindfulness can be practiced. It is all about being present in the moment. When grabbing your meals, you have to exist the moment and enjoy how your food tastes. When communicating with other people, you have to listen intently. Living mindfully frees your mind from worry and anxiety.

1.) Born in the late 1700s, they catapulted through time and space from the gun deck of the HMS Spartan during a sea fight with the French in 1804 to the starship NECS Vanguard in 2204.
2.) Best friends since their boyhood in Ireland, they’re smart, savvy, and fearless, as loyal to each other as they are to the British Royal Navy and the North European Confederation Fleet.
3.) A juggernaut of wits, wit, and boundless energy, they show the twenty-third century how it’s done when it comes to outwitting the Consortium, navigating any type of ship, and harnessing artificial intelligence to their keen advantage.
In Harry Heron: No Quarter, Harry Heron and his best friend Ferghal O’Connor are cadets at Fleet College, eager to master their skills in preparation for commissioning to a ship. They’ve barely stepped foot on campus when they realize they’re targeted and sabotaged at every turn, but this doesn’t stop them from exuberant participation in the Sailing Regatta, the Gun Run, and the usual flirtations and hijinks of college life. Meanwhile, the Consortium, supporting the Johnstone Group, does everything in its power to keep them from testifying at an enquiry to expose Johnstone’s questionable research practices that nearly killed Harry in their secret laboratory on the planet Pangaea. No quarter given, none asked, Harry and Ferghal overcome every obstacle with youthful vigor and optimism, intelligence and training, and prove valuable to the Fleet as junior officers of the NECS Leander in the ongoing struggle against the Consortium.
A freak accident on board the HMS Spartan during a sea battle with the French navy in 1804 catapults Midshipman Harry Heron and his shipmates Ferghal O’Connor and Danny Gunn four hundred years into the future, landing them on the NECS Vanguard, flagship of the World Treaty Organisation Fleet. While Captain Blackwood and Major Heron sort out the mystery and determine whether the young men are alive or dead, Harry and his friends are faced with the challenge of learning new roles aboard a spaceship. Just as they have found their footing, they are called upon to assist the Fleet in a rescue mission on the planet Pangaea, giving them the opportunity to prove that their unique skills from the past are still very relevant in the far distant future.
A fantasy detective adventure, with characters from Camelot as time travelling detectives.
Merlin is a good looking woman and madly in love with Arthur and they elope, but that’s only the start of the story.
Tertia, Unita, Merlin’s apprentices, and Marlene, her sister, know what they want to be… detectives with a difference. Bored with the lack of opportunity in 5th century Camelot they start up the Temporal Detective Agency and use the great Merlin’s Time Portal to relocate from Camelot to the 21st century mostly because the cases are more interesting, but also because the toilet facilities are so much better.
Things start slowly until one Sunday morning Tertia finds herself replacing Nelson’s statue in Trafalgar Square, involved in the thefts of the Koh-i-noor diamond and the Mona Lisa. The Agency follows the trail to South Wales in 1734 where they come up against a gang of vicious smugglers and ruthless ship wreckers led by their deadliest and most unlooked for enemy.
Help comes from an unexpected source, but the Temporal Detective Agency’s first case could prove to be their last!
The 2nd in the Temporal Detective Agency series.
When Arthur’s sword Excalibur is stolen the Temporal Detective Agency is called in to protect not only Arthur and Merlin, but to stop a very clever and cruel person from destroying Camelot itself. To make things worse, this time the TDA has no idea who they’re fighting.
Marlene’s plan takes Tertia and Unita to Rome, Egypt and even to a meeting with Shakespeare, before confronting their enemy in the Coliseum.
But first, if the Agency is to succeed, Arthur must die…. and Merlin and her King have to agree. If they don’t, Camelot will be doomed and History itself could be changed.
That’s the trouble with swords!

Emotionally scarred and physically weary, Dwan is ordered to go forty-seven years into the past in a last ditch effort to find the one man who can help her fight the monsters created decades ago by a company called Lambruchet. Monsters that have since devastated mankind and the world.
Eli Voight has been battling the Lambruchet demons ever since the company had his father killed. As the first Troller, he’s made it his duty to bring down the creatures and find a way to permanently stop them. He’s skeptical of Dwan’s claim that she’s from the future. But her skill is undeniable, and her presence becomes an all-consuming passion for the man who had pushed aside any thought of a personal life in his quest to drive the demons to extinction.
Dwan never expected to fall and fall hard for the emotionally unapproachable soldier. Worse, she knew what kind of death lay ahead for Eli, which meant there could never be a future for them.
Together, they must fight to take out the monstrosities, or else Earth as it is will cease to exist. And the Earth that could be, Dwan’s world, will only hold a future of horror and hopelessness.

THE INNER LOVER
“To thrive, love depends on the imaginative use of solitude.” If you have been uncomfortable about the intensity of your feelings for someone, crushed because they don’t feel the same way, or especially critical of your partner, then you will benefit from this book.
Understanding why we are passionately attracted to certain people can lead us to the “Inner Lover,” a creative aspect of our own nature. The images, feelings, and fantasies that are aroused when we fall in love—in brief encounters and lasting bonds, in requited and “impossible” relationships—are the keys to hidden potentials within ourselves. In this book, Valerie Harms presents techniques of journaling, dreamwork, and imaginal dialogues to guide the reader on an adventure of self-discovery in which the powerful energies of love may be transformed into creativity and fulfillment.
Valerie Harms is the author of ten books and a creativity counselor. She has led writing and Intensive Journal workshops at centers around the country, plus Canada and Greece. She worked on several projects with the diarist Anais Nin. A graduate of Smith College, forseven years she was a project editor at the National Audubon Society.

As an intergalactic cop gifted with psionic abilities, Maurra instinctively went to the Ellinod’s defense when she saw the immense and bestial-looking alien being attacked by a group of vicious Kronners. Little did she know what the Kronners had planned for her and the Ellinod until she woke up naked in a cell inside their ship.

This book contains divine affirmations, words of vibrational healing that come from within and from my other metaphysical books. These collections of affirmations and quotes are also from the responses of testimonials of those that affected the readers in profound ways that released them from their self-imposed prisons, spiritually, mentally, physically and emotionally.
People don’t thoroughly realize that their words create their reality but the power of words do. People wonder why their lives don’t bring about a peace and a cohesiveness that they see happening to others around them. They read books and books about abundance and prosperity and listen to hundreds of audio books but still don’t get it. They don’t get that the intention they put behind their words, the force and focus behind their words and thoughts create the undesired or desired end.
My intention is to help you see what you really want to see in your life and not what you don’t want to see.
